    Im going down from 19 to 18. !9s dont look big but i dont think 18s look small. 17s would though.

    If youre worried go for a concave style rim with spokes that go to the edge, they look bigger than dished wheels.

    I think this is down to what you class as 'looks good' for me, Im yet to see 20" wheels be pulled off and look good. Some 19's work if you stagger the fronts down a size. Me personally I prefer a 17/18 combo. I wouldnt ever go bigger than a 18 more so for tyres.

    I used to run 18's on the front until I started to smash wheels whilst drifting. Since fitting 17's and bigger profile its been taking the rumble strip impact nicer. I wouldnt consider running 18 up front again though, for me.. 17 up front is ideal ;)

    18 on the rear, 17 on the front of that one ^

    Basically what Mint is saying is if it's low enough it'll look sweet whatever size wheels you put on it. (nb: provided you get the width & offset right).

    I'm all for 18" all round... Or depending on the kit, you can run the staggered 18-19" setup.
